All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has launched a new anti-ragging helpline. It (AIIMS), also has plans to beef up police security inside the hostel premises.
The authorities at AIIMS have apparently requested for two PCR vans to be deployed each at the boys and the girl’s hostel. Also, internal teams will be constitutes in groups (4 each), to monitor the security at night in the hostel.
